fcpx v Adobe Premiere Pro

Final Cut Pro X's speed and thus the benefits are gradually becoming recognised by editors in the industry. So on a new Retina MacBook Pro, how does Adobe's Premiere Pro match up to FCPX's performance, especially with 4K? Badly as Max Yuryev found out in his video. We are looking forward to the comments about this one!

FCPX Buenos Aries

How do you know Final Cut Pro X is popular? When you have to move into a tent as you've grown out of the usual meeting room! The recent FCPX meeting in Buenos Aires hosted by Leonardo Hancevich (Leo Hans) was a huge success.

We are always on the lookout for different methods to control Final Cut Pro X as an alternative to our Magic Mouse with its Multi-Touch. These customisable controls from Palette are very different from the normal jog wheels and sliders on existing control surfaces.

The use of roles within Final Cut Pro X is a very flexible way to organise media on the timeline and structure the video and audio that can be exported out. The downside is that the setting of roles on multichannel audio clips isn't straightforward or quick if you have a lot to work your way through. Charlie Austin had the same frustration and developed the free app Role-O-Matic to do the hard work for you.

The problem with MAMs or Media Asset Management systems was that they were expensive and required a lot of hardware to service them. Not anymore. The newly launched KeyFlow Pro is $299 and can run on a MacBook Pro. A very interesting new app.

Everybody knows the next release of the the Mac operating system will be called El Capitan. But how many people have heard of the DLC that comes with it? What is it, what does it do and how will it affect editors?

You might have caught Matt Smith's launch of his quirkily named free plugin earlier this week. 'DAWG PÜ' adds some 'dirty soul' to clinical video footage.

Five extra DVDs have been released by the producers of Keanu Reeves' documentary SIDE BY SIDE. The film looks at the history, process and workflow of film production featuring interviews with directors such as James Cameron, Martin Scorsese and David Fincher. Walter Murch's extended interview features on one of the new discs where he talks about film editing and of course Final Cut Pro.

A really quick post & video, but an interesting one. Just how well does Final Cut Pro X run on the new 12" MacBook Retina?

FCPX Harlem Globetrotters
